Warhound Titan Part 4: torso assembly

Let’s continue the Warhound adventure with the torso. The assembly is quite straightforward for this part as there are only a few parts. The trick here is to use big clamp to maintain the big part together will the glue is hardening.

When the shoulders were assembled, I tried to fasten the arms previously prepared using a screw.

Screw in the hidden bolt until its tight but not too much because you still want the arm to be able to point at your targets on the battlefield.

I magnetized the shoulder caps. When in place, this will hide the head of the screw.

Voila!

Next part is how to fasten the torso to the hip. I started by drilling a hole in the center of the upper part of the hip.

As previously for the arms, I draw then dig the shape of a bolt around the hole.

I also drilled a hole in the cockpit and placed an eyelet to reinforce the hole.

The eyelet in place.

Then you just have to screw the torso to the hidden bolt in the hip.

Again, do not tighten to much as you still want the torso to rotate a little.
